A temp fix would be to download the mpeg1 or mpeg2 file and convert it to the "iPod" format. There are a few programs out there. I've used iSquint [http://homepage.mac.com/tylerl82/] which is a nice wrapper around ffmpeg.

A more multiuse video encoder is ffmpegX [http://homepage.mac.com/major4/]

there's also mencoder (from mplayer)...

I just rederived the files. Try the MPEG-4 now and see if the audio problem has been fixed.

The two that were fine before were not updated (identical files anyway).

Sing a song of six pants, has the annoying right channel buzz sporadically.

The sound goes the entire way and sounds great on "why doesn't kathy eat breakfast" However, the video quality is obviously lower. Most likely because it is at 160x120 for resolution as opposed to 320x240?

Thanks for working on this.

have you tried mplayer on different machines or different versions? ...perhaps your mplayer/mencoder compile/version has something wrong with it?

I'll gladly do testing on my linux boxes (recompile mplayer/mencoder with the compile flags you used/want, run you script on my boxes, etc) if you need/want me to. Its the least I can do.

"Why Doesn't Cathy Eat Breakfast?" (http://www.archive.org/details/why_doesnt_cathy_eat_breakfast) has been fixed. Tracey found a bug in the derivation process.

Also, I believe that "Sing a Song of Six Pants" (http://www.archive.org/details/sing_a_song_of_six_pants) has been fixed.
